Lori Montogmery-Wickham's New Student Family Advocate

Hello Wickham families! I am your new Student and Family Advocate (SFA), Lori Montgomery. This will be my 3rd year as an ICCSD SFA. My prior work experience has included over 14 years of family support for Johnson County families for a non profit organization. I currently reside in West Branch with my husband, 15 year old daughter, 13 year old son and 12 year old dog. I have a 22 year old daughter that just recently graduated from college and moved to South Carolin to pursue her dreams. I was raised in southern Minnesota and you will still catch me saying “aunt” not “ant” and talking about eating hotdishes! I love spending time with my family, sports (Go Hawks! Go Vikings!), reading, being outside, cards & board games and listening to music. I look forward to meeting all of you and as your SFA my goals are to connect families to the community and to make all feel welcome, seen and safe.

Volunteer Opportunities!

We love our volunteers and are always looking for more people to help out! There are many opportunities throughout the year to volunteer at school.

At this time the district is not allowing volunteers into the building, but we would like parents who are interested to complete the form now so that you will be ready to volunteer when we can welcome you back into the building.


Health Office Clothing

As we start the year we are in need of some clothing for our health office borrower's closet. If you have any gently used clothes in size 8 or larger we would love to have them.
